Pet Worming

Not a pleasant subject to think about, but most people know that both dogs and cats can become infested with worms.

What does a worm infestation look like?

Severe worm infections in pets are easy to spot:–

Rough, dry coat, general loss of condition/ weight, vomiting, diarrhoea.

However, in mild infestations you will probably not know.

Why treat your pets for worms?

1. It is essential to frequently worm young puppies and kittens, because they are most at risk of severe disease.

2. Toxocara canis, is easily transmitted to children, and can cause permanent eye damage and loss of sight.

For this , if for no other reason, we all have a responsibility to keep our animals free from worms, and minimise the spread of infection in the environment.

How can you treat worms in your pets?

Both dogs and cats require regular worming, with a product which kills all tapeworms and all roundworms.

Fortunately, we can provide a treatment which kills all intestinal worms which commonly infect UK dogs and cats, with a single, simple dose.

We recommend treatment for worms every 3 months in adult dogs and cats, more frequently in puppies and kittens starting from 2 weeks of age.
